Time Out Says

Somewhere. The name doesn’t give much away but the mystery only adds to our intrigue, and it’s with the spirit of true explorers that we whip on our elephant pants and trek down to the new travel-themed restaurant.

Somewhere turns out to be not just anywhere, but in the swanky Fashion Avenue extension of The Dubai Mall. It has pristine marble furnishings, floor-to-ceiling windows, potted plants aplenty and a terrace overlooking The Dubai Fountain.

The fairly concise menu is inspired by the travels of the team, and all of the Middle Eastern dishes have an international twist – from the Mediterranean to Mexico.

The concept is to enjoy the thrill of travelling through authentic cuisine from around the world. So it’s with this thought in mind that we get stuck into a delicious aubergine moussaka, which is fresh and tasty, swathed in a rich, herby tomato sauce.

Don’t miss the delightful falafel salad (with ten falafel balls, no less), consisting of crisp green leaves drizzled in a lovely light tahini dressing.

There’s even a special “hummus bar”, and we’re big fans of the guacamole version, which tastes phenomenal.

There’s even a stack of travel books to plan a getaway. Or just get your head in the bowl and let your imagination take you there thanks to the wonderful flavours.

The bottom line
Mall dining goes upmarket.
